    Annex V of the POP Protocol gives information on BAT


General approach to bat annex v art 10

General approach to BAT ( Annex V, art 10)

Prevention

  • Replace feed materials

  • Best practice (good housekeeping, maintenance)

  • Modify process design

    Abatement

  • Flue gas cleaning (end of pipe)

    • by destruction or separation

      Control

  • Treat residuals


General approach to bat prevention

General approach to BAT: Prevention

  • Feed materials:

    • reduce chlorine content of fuel, raw materials and waste

  • Best practices:

    • cleaning, maintenance, management

  • Process design:

    • temperature > 850 C

    • residence time > 2 sec

    • Oxygen content, mixing conditions


General approach to bat abatement

General approach to BAT: Abatement

Destruction

  • Incineration

  • Catalytic oxidation

    Separation

  • Filters (fabric filter, electrostatic precipitator, ceramic filter)

  • Absorption: wet scrubber

  • Adsorption: activated carbon


General approach to bat control of residuals

General approach to BAT: Control of residuals

  • Combustion in a waste treatment plant

  • Controlled landfill


Integrated approach

Integrated approach

Abatement of POPs can be combined with:

  • Heavy metals

  • Other VOCs

  • Particulate matter

  • SO2 and NOx


Example bat pcdd f waste incineration

Example BAT: PCDD/F waste incineration

Waste incineration (Annex V, chapter IV)

  • Control of chlorine content in the waste feed (PCBs)

  • Process design: temperature, residence time

  • Dust filtration: ESP or fabric filter

  • Adsorption: fixed bed activated carbon

    Performance: TEQ << 0,1 ng/m3


Example bat pcdd f waste incineration1

Example BAT: PCDD/F waste incineration


Example bat pcdd f waste incineration2

Example BAT: PCDD/F waste incineration


Example bat pcdd f metallurgical industry

Example BAT: PCDD/F metallurgical industry

Sinterplant in steelworks (Annex V, chapter IV)

  • Encapsulation of sinter strand

  • Waste gas recirculation

  • ESP : < 4 ng/m3 TEQ

  • ESP + limestone/activated carbon: < 0,1 ng/m3 TEQ

  • high efficiency scrubber: < 0,4 ng/m3 TEQ


Example bat pcdd f metallurgical industry1

Example BAT: PCDD/F metallurgical industry


Example bat pcdd f secondary aluminium

Example BAT: PCDD/F secondary aluminium

  • Avoiding halogenated material

  • Cleaning aluminium scrap

  • Fabric filter

  • Fabric filter + limestone/activated carbon: < 0,1 ng/m3 TEQ


Example bat pcdd f secondary aluminium1

Example BAT: PCDD/F secondary aluminium


Example bat pcdd f secondary aluminium2

Example BAT: PCDD/F secondary aluminium


Example bat pah residential combustion

Example BAT: PAH Residential combustion

Wood stoves, coal fired stoves (Annex V, chapter V)

  • Fuel selection (dry coal, dry wood)

  • Product standards, e.g. CEN

  • Public information programme


Implementation of the pop protocol in the netherlands nl

Implementation of the POP Protocol in the Netherlands (Nl)

  • Ban of substances

    use in Nl not allowed

  • Limitations of use

    legislation

  • Implementation of BAT through

    guidelines and environmental licenses

    national programmes

  • Implementation of ELVs

    in national legislation


Nl example general measures to reduce pcdd f

Nl example: general measures to reduce PCDD/F

Reduction of chlorine content and PCB content in fuels.

  • National legislation for all fuels:

    • Chlorine content < 50 mg/kg

    • PCB content < 0,5 mg/kg

  • Result

    Reduction of PCDD/F levels in environment


  • Nl example reduction of pcdd f from mwis

    Nl example: reduction of PCDD/F from MWIs

    Policy instruments for reduction of PCDD/F from municipal waste incinerators (MWIs)

    • International policy framework

      EU-WID 2000/76/EC, IPPC 96/62/EC and BREFs

      UN/ECE POP Protocol

    • National legislation for municipal waste incinerators

    • National guideline and licensing for small incinerators

    • Management of chlorine content of waste


    Nl example reduction of pcdd f from mwi s

    Nl example: reduction of PCDD/F from MWI’s

    Emission limit value for PCDD/F from waste incineration

    • POP Protocol Annex IV art 7 and Annex V chapter IVA

      • ELV = 0,1 ng/m3 TEQ

      • Residence time = 2 sec, temperature 850 C

  • BAT based on activated carbon adsorption

  • Result:

    • MWI’s: PCDD/F << 0,1 ng/m3 TEQ

    • > 99% Emission reduction from 400 gram TEQ / year to < 4 gram TEQ/year


  • Nl example reduction of pcdd f from a sinterplant

    Nl example: reduction of PCDD/F from a sinterplant

    BAT emission level for PCDD/F from sinter plants

    POP Protocol Annex V, chapter IV B

    • Emission level 0,1 – 0,4 ng/m3 TEQ

    • BAT = activated carbon adsorption or high efficiency scrubber

  • National emission guideline:

    • ELV in permit PCDD/F < 0,4 ng/m3 TEQ

  • Result:

    • Air fine scrubber installed

    • emission < 0,4 ng/m3 TEQ


  • Conclusions

    Conclusions

    • BAT in Annex V of the Protocol is sufficient to reach ELVs in Annex IV

    • Implementation of BAT in Annex V will bring large reductions of emissions of POPs

    • BAT to reduce POPs can also reduce other pollutants (HM, PM, VOC, SO2, NOx)
